    Why Grrrr? This still doesn't mean a 5 doesn't exist.

    there are 2 reports dating back in February that state that the iPhone 4S will have an entirely different look than the current iPhone 4.

    what if there are three upgrades? iPhone 4S, a smaller iPhone, and the iPhone 5?

    Bloomberg
    Wall Street Journal, (the source that broke news of the announcement date of October 4, 2011)
    on the iPhone 5

    True, but wouldn't you think that the '5' cases would be arriving in conjunction of the 4S ones? Or atleast around the same time.

    The camera opening on the speck case looks strange to me...

    Maybe the 4S will be available immediately after the press event and the 5 will be a couple weeks away.

    It also seems like those cases have been around for a while. Nothing new or connected to the 4s.

    BGR failed on this one. But it was a good excuse to post a new "update" (even if it was crap) to up thier hits!

    I don't know if I buy this report. Maybe the company did just release new cases for the existing iPhone. If you look at the second set of photos you will see in the top left corner of the box it clearly says "iPhone 4" If this was for an iPhone 4s wouldn't they have put that on the box somewhere?

    Good to know that cases are ready to go since it appears that Apple is hell-bent on continuing to use fragile glass in the construction of it's phones.

    Here's to another 12 months of shatters!

    There's a news item on the front page about this now, and the Otterbox does have "4S" on the packaging

    Yeah but you can't tell what product is in that packaging. The pictures in the bgr report clearly only say 4 on them.

    Just look at speck's website. They are selling the supposed 4s case now for the 4.

    "UPDATE: Multiple people have reached out to let us know that the larger camera opening has to do with the LED flash on the current iPhone 4 and not a potential larger camera sensor. As such, the cases pictured above are likely not indicative of a new iPhone model." - BGR

    I still believe that Apple is allowing a lot of the 4S leaks to keep some of the mystery around the 5. They are being much more careful about the 5.

    You need to see Chronic's tweets.

    The only thing actually labeled 4s is an empty box.

    The actualy cases bgr claims are new are labeled 4 (at least the otterbox one). And the supposedly new speck one appears to be a few months old.

    Non story.

    ----------

    I did. It's just an empty box.

    That still provides a lot of data, empty or not. This was a professionally run retail package from a MAJOR manufacturer. To blow it off is foolishness.

    Funny, Chronic is now sorry for his tweet because he thought BGR had the same info. LOL

    Blow it off? No. I think it could be real. It seems pretty solid that at a minimum a 4s is coming out soon. But it doesn't tell us jack crap about what the phone is.

    It also could be an error. Or just a mockup for some potential future design. It is one box that says 4s on it.

    ----------

    Ah. Now that is interesting. Good eye

    I don't own an otter box case now. Is that different than the current case for the 4? I know it looks different than the button configuration.
